I have a problem. Recently, when I do my pirouettes I have a problem with keeping my eyes focused at a certain spot. Sometimes, I feel I'm tipping over. Is it because my neck isn't relaxed? Thanks for your help:D

It could be that you are holding too much tension in the neck area and the head does not turn quickly enough to maintain the focus. However, it's very hard to know without seeing you. Try taking a breath just before the pirouette, and exhale just as you begin the upward spiral. This relaxes the muscles in the upper body and should help to allow the head to turn freely.

i think that could be my problem. my teacher is always telling me that i need to spot better, and i am generaly falling to one side of the other. i will try it at ballet class. Thanks.
